Chad Johnson is taking his bad self back to "#Bachelor in Paradise" this summer and hopefully, he won't be getting all murdery again. Known as one of Bachelor Nation's biggest villains, the #Reality TV star has confirmed that he will appear on Season 4. He already has his eye on some of Nick's ladies who will be looking for love after getting dumped on Nick Viall's season of "#The Bachelor" and there's a good chance he'll meet his match — finally.
Johnson, who was kicked off the last season of "Paradise" after he passed out drunk and was verbally abusive to contestant Lace Morris, is currently single and ready to mingle so he's totally ready to start filming in June. He tells Us Weekly that ABC has invited him back because, hey, why not. And whether you love him or hate him, there's going to be a double dose of Chad TV this summer.
Johnson recently filmed E!'s "Famously Single" Season 2 and the premiere is expected to air in June. "Paradise" typically starts filming in June and, in previous seasons, ABC airs the premiere in August following the finale of "The Bachelorette."
Who's headed to 'Paradise' with Chad?
Several of Chad's co-stars from JoJo Fletcher's season of "The Bachelorette" and a long list of girls from Nick Viall's season of "The Bachelor" are expected to show up in "Paradise" to find love or, at the very least, a fling and an opportunity to pimp out more products on social media.
On the rumor list are Chase McNary and Robby Hayes who now live together in Colorado. And don't be surprised if Luke Pell, who was THIS close to becoming the 2017 "Bachelor" lead, makes an appearance on "Bachelor in Paradise" along with the other guitar-playing contestant, James Taylor McCoy.
What about the ladies?
According to Reality Steve, fans can expect to see plenty of Nick Viall's castoffs in "Paradise" this summer — host Chris Harrison will probably drop some major hints about the cast on the upcoming "The Bachelor: Women Tell All" special. One of the most talked-about contestants from Nick's season, Corinne Olympios, is probably number one on the casting list so get ready for some crazy Monday nights on what will inevitably turn out to be the Corinne and Chad show.
And while we're speculating, here are a few other guys and girls who may be part of the "Bachelor in Paradise" Season 4 cast — Liz Sandoz, Danielle Lombard, Taylor Nolan, Raven Gates, Kristina Schulman, Alexis Waters from Nick's season and perhaps a few former "BIP" contestants including Ashley Iaconetti, Lace Morris, Wells Adams, Jared Haibon, Daniel Maguire, Vinny Ventiera, and Jen Saviano.
